Adding drama to the Schuylerville, the first of seven 2-year-old graded stakes at the Spa, is a new $100,000 bonus awarded by NYRA. Five of the seven fillies entered in the six-furlong race are eligible for the bonus, awarded to any juvenile who broke his or her maiden at Belmont Park or Aqueduct that goes on to win a graded stakes at NYRA track in 2012.

 

“It’s a great attempt by NYRA to spice up the 2-year-old program,” said Pletcher, who is seeking his fifth Schuyerville victory with Can’t Explain, who is 5-1 on the morning-line after her second-out maiden win on June 20. “It seems like the 2-year-old maiden races filled consistently, and filled sooner. We’re looking forward to the possiblity of earning a bonus, and hopefully Can’t Explain and some of our other 2-year-olds are able to go on and get lucky and earn the bonus.”

 

Also vying for the bonus will be the 5-2 morning-line favorite, Baby J, who was purchased by Paul Pompa following her victorious debut on June 28; Fully Living, who won on May 3 and the 4-1 third choice on the morning line; Mr Hall’s Opus, a winner on May 2 and 15-1 on the morning line, and Sweet Shirley Mae, a front-running winner on May 9 and the 7-2 second choice.

 

Completing the field are Brown Eyes Blue, a winner at Churchill Downs on June 30, and So Many Ways, who broke her maiden at Parx on June 9.
